Trey Gowdy tells GOP Colleagues to Shut UP about Benghazi!

Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was a guest on this past Sunday’s episode of CBS’ Face the Nation where he was asked about comments made by other Republicans about the Benghazi hearings. Gowdy, who has been playing defense for the investigation ever since Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said some questionable things a few weeks ago, seems to be growing tired of having to defend his investigation from stupid Republican politicians. Gowdy told host John Dickerson that his colleagues who haven’t been a part of the investigation or the hearings need to keep their mouths shut.

I have told my own Republican colleagues and friends, shut up talking about things that you don’t know anything about. And unless you’re on the committee, you have no idea what we’ve done, why we’ve done it and what new facts we have found. We have found new facts that have absolutely nothing to do with her. I get people don’t want to talk about that but the seven members of my committee are much more focused on the four dead Americans than we are anyone’s presidential aspirations.

If I were a GOP politician in Washington, I’d take Gowdy’s reprimand very seriously. He doesn’t seem to be the kind of guy you want to be ticking off.

Keep up the good work, Congressman, don’t let the dummies in D.C. wear you down.

John Dickerson: Speaking of the the politicization of this, Carly Fiorina, running for president, rendered her view on what these hearings are about, or what this hearing is about this week. She said, ‘I wish for once Mrs. Clinton would be prepared to stand and be held accountable for murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.’ What do you make that have comment, and is that what Thursday is about? 

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC): No, that is not what Thursday is about. Thursday is about what happened before, during and after. Frankly, in Secretary Clinton’s defense, she’s going to have lot more information about the before than she is the during and the after.

I get that there’s presidential campaign going on. I have told my own Republican colleagues and friends, shut up talking about things that you don’t know anything about. And unless you’re on the committee, you have no idea what we’ve done, why we’ve done it and what new facts we have found. We have found new facts that have absolutely nothing to do with her. I get people don’t want to talk about that but the seven members of my committee are much more focused on the four dead Americans than we are anyone’s presidential aspirations.
